Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 13 April 2016 – Dubai aspires after more attention: Until the World Exhibition Expo 2020 another record tower is about to be build next to the 800 meter high Burj Khalifa. According to tophotelprojects.com, currently 119 top hotels with 37,000 rooms are being built in Dubai.
The new, even higher, skyscraper will be built by Emmar Properties in the old “Dubai Creek” quarter and will feature a boutique hotel, rotating balconies, a viewing platform and hanging gardens like the legend of Babylon. The new property is expected to be finished in just four years.
The height on the new, so far unnamed tower in Dubai is not yet set. Meanwhile in the neighbouring country Saudi Arabia the worldwide highest skyscraper is being built in Jeddah – the “Jeddah Tower” formerly called “Kindgom Tower”. The tower will be 1,007 meters high and will include a luxury hotel by Four Seasons and apartments.
